Subject: Re: MP3 clip generation with Eloquence

Re: MP3 clip generation with Eloquence

Hi Jani

I see that this adds another tab in the speech area of control panel where
one can select the eloq voices but I dont see how it can be selected for use
with voicebox as it is still not an option to select in the text to speech
tab, any ideas?

Cheers
